AURORA, Colo. — No charges will be filed against an Aurora police officer who shot a man waving a pellet gun inside a McDonald’s bathroom.
District Attorney Dave Young says officer Alfred Eways was justified when he shot Dillon Safford in both arms last May.
According to the Denver Post (http://tinyurl.com/gtghqh2 ), customers called police after they saw the man had a gun and was mumbling to himself.
Safford suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was treated at a hospital.
Investigators said Eways did not turn on his body camera before the shooting, and the footage from other officers were obstructed from a clear view.
The police department is still trying to determine if Eways will be disciplined for failing to turn on his body camera.
